Anyone heard any news on the 2020 sentinel? I read on another forum that they’re waiting to release it for a little while buy it will have more travel, different geo - still in SBG but something like 63.5 head angle. Thoughts?

Interesting all the rumors I have heard say no changes for the sentinel besides some components
Any info on when it’s coming out?

Anyone move from the stock 40mm stem to something a little shorter like a 35mm? I am looking to shrink up my reach just a bit but wonder if that will effect the whole SBG package too much.

1. Stock geometry is not perfect and inviolable. Companies proclaimed their geometry to be perfect in the '90s and look how much it's changed. Perhaps it was perfect for how we were riding at that time or perhaps it limited how we could ride. Either way, riding styles have changed and geometry changed along with it. You are as qualified as anyone to initiate further evolution.

2. If your body, riding style, and / or preferences do not perfectly align with your equipment, change your equipment.

3. SBG is no more a "package" - and no more sensitive to changes - than any other bike's geometry.

4. A 5 mm change in stem length is barely enough to notice, let alone worry about.

Bottom line: Do it.
